From Highland Alcohol and Drug Partnership, Debbie Stewart, Co-ordinator commented: “These have been fantastic shows, the standard is absolutely amazing, I can’t believe the numbers of kids that are involved and I also can’t believe the number of families and members of the community. What we actually see on stage is fantastic but that’s just one part of how Rock Challenge impacts/works in local communities. It is a key part of our prevention programs to encourage young people to get a more natural high and avoid drugs and alcohol. Just brilliant!!”
